Barns at De-Freville Farm - Cambridgeshire

These barns were very sensitive buildings and to begin with the Local Authority Conservation Officers believed that any proposals for a residential conversion could not be supported.

Following a detailed building survey and analysis of the timber frame we were able to produce a design scheme to demonstrate that two high quality homes could be created with only a limited amount of physical intervention and consent was granted subsequently.

Working with developers Dakin Estates we proceeded beyond planning to provide further information in respect of construction and detailing.
